Chicago, Illinois, Around Midnight

Photos like this are extraordinarily difficult to shoot, and therefore quite rare.
The combination of 1) low light, 2) the International Space Station moving
5 miles/second,  3) a powerful zoom lens, and 4) a handheld, weightless
camera make it very difficult to shoot a photo that isn’t smeared at all.

WHITEFISH BAY, LAKE SUPERIOR

Looking like gold foil, Whitefish Bay glistens in the August sun.  The brightest
reflections are from the St. Marys River system, especially the St. Joseph Channel.
